The Name-Calling Glacier

glacier

So my family went on a trip to Alaska and we were on a small cruise ship when my wife took this photo.

I told her it was the Sumdum Glacier.  She gave me “the look”, probably because she heard it as “Some Dumb Glacier”.  I took out a detailed map to which she realized it was actually “Sumdum Glacier”.  The other passengers overheard our conversation and laughed along with us. Tour guide says it happens A LOT!
